His dam, the Bellaventure mare Kalone, is a daughter of the exceptional Kannan and runs a fabulous maternal line! Her granddam is none other than Prestige Kalone's dam, ridden by Philippe Rozier in CSI5* classes (1.60m), and is descended from one of the best Anglo-Arabian bloodlines, having herself been a finalist at Fontainebleau at age 6.
ERMITAGE's production is still very young. Her first offspring were born in 2018 and are already making a name for themselves in competition, at approvals and also at auctions, so this is undoubtedly a stallion with a future!
